Since, the certificate is already attested by Indian Embassy, it will be acceptable by Indian Embassy in Qatar. It will also be acceptable for Visa Processing. So, please go ahead.

Good Luck for visa processing.

I have been working in Qatar since 1989 ,now salary 6000QR in a reputed company.My wife is  educated and experienced hand  in Engineering field and willing to work here.If I bring her with my 2 children on visit visa , is there any chance to get permanent visa for my family

If your wife finds a job which will allow her to apply for family visa, then she can sponsor you and your children, as per new changes in labour laws. However, you can sponsor only if your salary is 10,000 or more. You can call your family on visit visa, and your wife may apply for job. But only after 6 months of bank statement of salary transfer can she apply for residence visa.

I also suggest that you try to apply after both you and your wife are working, so that you are clear of you situation, and you may get lucky.
